I am running WRF in idealized setting: a small box of 200X200 km, double periodic boundary conditions.
I used to have water surface with fixed SST to study cloud population in cloud resolving resolution.
Now I would like to use land surface (NOAH), but would have to provide the following:
- land type as Tundra only (since it is a small domain).
- surface (soil) temperature to initialize the model with (does it have to be in the 4 layers or only 1?).
- soil moisture to initialize the model with (does it have to be in the 4 layers or only 1?).
I have no prior experience in land surface model, and would really appreciate the help.
